Year 2

This half term, we are continuing with our topic ‘Walk on the wild side.’

As part of this topic we are continuing to learn about different animals from around the world.

In science, we will begin to look at plants and their habitats. We are hoping to grow our own plants and flowers. We will also continue our learning about animal habitats.

In maths we will be recapping the curriculum that we have taught throughout the year and consolidating our learning. We would recommend using Hit The Button or Times Table Rockstars to practise your times tables.

During this half-term, our children will be taking part in their National Curriculum Assessments. Please make sure your child has an early night and is at school on time throughout May. We also recommend that you read with your child daily and follow these learning links:

Reading Challenge:

This half term we are beginning to learn about plants. Check out the facts on DK Find Out - Plants.

When you have read the information, can you create a poster all about plants? Maybe you could go out in your garden or local area to look at the plants in our environment.

You could also follow this link to find out more on BBC Bitesize - Animals

Creative Challenge:

With your family, can you build a model of your favourite animal using junk models from around your house?

Think about where they live and what they need in their habitat to survive.

Family Challenge:

All the children have worked incredibly hard in preparation for their national curriculum assessments. As a family could you have a picnic or a small party to celebrate your child’s hard work? You could bake a cake, make some sandwiches and even sit outside!
